Milltown Super Adults celebrate 10 year anniversary
Published: Thur, 16 Mar 2017
To celebrate, the Milltown Super Adults Club from Dungannon have launched a booklet funded by us to promote a decade of service to the local community.
The booklet highlights the achievements of the club and their activities, as well as some of their visits including to Crumlin Road Gaol, the Titanic Quarter and the An Creagan Centre in Omagh. The booklet was launched at the Milltown Super Adults Club centre at Gardiner’s Hall situated in the Milltown area of Dungannon.
The Milltown Super Adults Club was set up in 2007 to encourage the engagement of older people in the area by providing companionship, advice, physical and mental exercise and health promotion. The Club hosts a wide range of activities including knitting, cross community outings, training classes and networking opportunities.
The Club works for the wider benefit of the community and the surrounding area. The club supports good mental health through the engagement of older people by restoring their confidence and reducing the sense of social isolation.
Billy Cardwell, Chairperson from the Milltown Super Adults Club said:
“We are thrilled to be able to unveil our 10th anniversary booklet today which documents the journey of the Milltown Super Adults Club and the important role the Club plays within the local community. It is great to see so many familiar faces to help celebrate our 10 years in existence.”
“The Club increases awareness of the need for older people to engage within the local community. The Milltown area has a thriving elderly population.”
“This project would not have been possible without the financial support of the Housing Executive. We have a strong working relationship with our local Housing Officers, who help keep our members safe in their Housing Executive tenancies.”
Our Dungannon Assistant Housing Services Manager Helen Hicks added
“The Milltown Super Adults Club have a strong legacy within the greater Dungannon area. They play an important role in providing an outlet to elderly residents through a wide range of activities.
“We would like to congratulate the Milltown Super Adults Club on the completion of the booklet and I hope the local community will support this important venture.”
